A real church for real people...
When you arrive on our beautiful campus, you'll find designated Guest Parking. Go ahead and park there, it's reserved for you! Then, drop your children and youth off at one of our 4 age-appropriate environments designed specifically for them. It's safe and fun too. Free coffee and treats await you on our Patio before you head into our main auditorium for our worship service. The service lasts just over an hour. Our services contain live worship, video and creative elements that enhance the topic of the day, and a creative message based on the life changing words from the Bible.
9AM & 11AM
At Pinellas Community Church, we hold to the truth that God desires for all of His people to walk in unity and love (John 17). Unfortunately, church history reveals that God's people have often allowed dogma and doctrine to divide and alienate those that God calls "brothers in Christ." Rather than focus on divisive doctrinal issues that have produced denominations, sects, and church splits, we focus simply on the "essential beliefs"--those beliefs necessary to experience spiritual "new birth" or salvation from sin and fellowship with God. (Ephesians 4:4-6; Romans 14:1, 4, 22; 1 Corinthians 13:2)
Here's what we believe:
God is the creator and the ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Those three are co-equal with God and are one God.
1 Peter 1:2
2 Corinthians 13:14
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. He was born of a virgin and lived a perfect, sinless human life. He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days, ascended into heaven, and will return again someday to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22, 23
John 1:1-5; 14:10-30
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
1 Timothy 6:14-15
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and Son. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of Salvation. He provides the believer with power for living, understanding spiritual truth, wisdom, and guidance for doing what is right. As Christians, we seek to live under his control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17
John 16:7-13; 14:16-17
1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16
About the Bible
The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for all Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 1:13, 3:16
2 Peter 1:20-21
Psalm 119:105; 160, 12:6
People are made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. People are the supreme objects of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." This sinful attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sins by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God's offer for forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-willed life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
John 14:6, 1:12
The soul of every human being was created to live forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through salvation and forgiveness. Hell is eternal separation from God. Heaven is eternal union with God. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
